Preceptorship in Hepatology
The Empire Liver Foundation (ELF) and the NYC Department of Health are offering a half-day Preceptorship in Hepatology for clinical providers who have previously participated in an ELF Clinical Provider Training Series, and are interested in expanding their knowledge and skills in the diagnosis and treatment of liver diseases, with a specific focus on viral hepatitis B and C. Participants will be assigned to local private practices, health centers and/or medical facilities closest to where they are currently practicing.
Participants will observe a senior hepatologist caring for patients with liver diseases during the 3-4 hours of this single half-day preceptorship. The sessions will cover topics such as:
- liver directed history taking
- physical examination
- test ordering and interpretation
Participants will have opportunities to discuss each case with the preceptor and at the end of the half-day preceptorship. Participants will have the opportunity to continue the mentor/mentee relationship initiated from this preceptorship.
The ELF Preceptorship registration is on a rolling basis throughout the year.
